Make a mask inspired by our World Cultures collection
10.30 am to 3.30pm | Pay on arrival (no need to book) | RAMM’s Garden
From monkey masks used in Tibetan opera to masks used in Nigerian initiation rituals; from the mask of Mahakala, the ‘lord of time’, to the face mask of the samurai warrior who guards our World Cultures gallery, your imagination is the only limit to your design.
Masks are an icon of transformation, of becoming something you are not. Just like modern superheroes, masks have been used in cultures throughout time and across the world. They hide the wearer’s identity and channel special powers, they protect, defend, and even to strike fear into one’s opponents.
What will inspire your design? What will your mask allow you to become?
In the hopeful expectation of fine weather, please do bring a rug or groundsheet to take part in the activity on the lawn.
